‍Depending on your body type, weight loss may come with a side of frustration. You may find that it’s nearly impossible to lose fat in specific areas, or even that exercise has little effect on the scale. But luckily, you don’t have to accept this as your fate and resign yourself to a life of baggy sweatshirts everywhere you go.

It is true that there are some people who are naturally more predisposed to store fat in certain locations, but you do not have to be one of them. Non-invasive body sculpting is an excellent way to burn away subcutaneous fat in problem areas without requiring surgery or giving up a healthy diet and exercise routine.

How Does Non-Invasive Body Sculpting Work?
Non-invasive body sculpting works similar to the way that liposuction does, but without the invasive surgery. It can be performed on almost any area of the body, but because there is no incision, patients are able to resume activities the same day. While there is some discomfort, the recovery time is very minimal.

Benefits of Non-Invasion Body Sculpting
Non-invasive body sculpting has a lot of benefits when compared to other body sculpting treatments. It’s non-invasive, painless, and takes 30 minutes to one hour per treatment area. Plus, it can be done anywhere on the body and doesn’t require a long recovery period or downtime.

Other methods of body shaping require invasive surgery, are painful and may require you to stay in the hospital for several days, and may leave you incapacitated for weeks after. Non-invasive methods like Coolsculpting and Emsculpt NEO can be done right in the doctor’s office at Triangle Eye Institute, and you can resume normal activities within hours.

Coolsculpting vs Emsculpt NEO
There are many different types of non-invasive body sculpting treatments, but Coolsculpting and Emsculpt NEO are two of the most popular. Both are FDA-approved and have been used by thousands of patients to safely and effectively reduce fat and cellulite on the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and knees. While they both use a non-invasive method and have a proven track record, they have a few key differences. The main difference between the two treatments is that Coolsculpting uses cooling to numb the treatment area while Emsculpt NEO does not.

Coolsculpting uses cryolipolysis to destroy 20-22% of fat. This procedure uses suction to draw fat into an applicator and removes it. Because it is a very specific area of fat the Coolscupting removes, This can lead to a higher risk of contour deformity. The use of cooling agent to remove the fat, may cause numbness from the cold and inflammation of the nerves in the area This fat removal does not build any muscle, just helps to reduce fat in a specifc area.

Emsculpt NEO

Emsculpt NEO uses heat energy and radiofrequency to melt on average 30% fat in treated area. Because it delivers an even and disperse energy over the entire treatment area, there is no risk of contour deformity. You may have some muscle soreness that equates to soreness after a workout due to the high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology (HIFEM) and radiofrequency energy that also helps build muscle by 25%. Emsculpt NEO offers better results, more benefits, less risk and discomfort than Coolsculpting. Dr. Yaplee’s recommended treatment for patients seeking non invasive body contouring is Emsculpt NEO.

Before the Procedure
Before your Emsculpt NEO treatment, you will have a consultation with Dr. Yaplee. During this appointment, you’ll be asked about your medical history and lifestyle. He may also want you to take food logs and maybe even take some body measurements. You’ll be advised as to what to expect during and after the procedure. It’s also a good idea to hydrate with water the day before your treatment, and wear loose-fitting clothing to the appointment.

It’s so simple, it can be done on your lunch hour.

After the Procedure
After your Emsculpt NEO treatment, you may experience some mild discomfort. There is minimal down time (likely not even an hour) and hardly any pain. The muscles contract through the radio frequency so it may feel like you had a mild workout with those muscles. The skin is kept free from extreme temperatures so the side effects are a lot less than Coolsculpt.

Non-invasive body sculpting is an excellent way to safely and effectively reduce fat and cellulite in problem areas. The non-invasive, painless Emsculpt NEO takes less than one hour per treatment area, making it a great option for those who can’t or don’t want to undergo invasive surgery.

Still, there are a few things to keep in mind before scheduling your procedure. First, it’s important to choose a provider with certified technicians who follow FDA guidelines, like Triangle Eye Institute. Next, you’ll want to make sure to hydrate with water the day before and wear loose-fitting clothing during your treatment.
